Friends and family celebrate life of Prof Schreiner

2008-06-02 00:00

Friends and family of the late Professor Deneys Schreiner held a memorial gathering in the Tembaletu Community Education Centre hall yesterday to celebrate the life of a father, friend, academic, activist and humanist.

The Reverend Dr Simon Gqubule recalled the strangeness of a priest having a close friendship with a scientist who was not religious. Yet it was a friendship that saw the Gqubule family stay with the Schreiners when they, along with other residents of the Federal Theological Seminary in Imbali, were chased out during the height of apartheid-era violence. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
